Catastrophic Injury FAQs


How are catastrophic injuries caused?

Catastrophic injuries can occur anywhere. Most often though, catastrophic injuries result from traffic accidents like motorcycle accidents, car accidents, and truck accidents. These serious accidents can leave you a victim of head and brain injuries, and those can be considered catastrophic injuries. There are two types of brain injuries: penetrating and closed head injury – both of which can cause devastating problems.

What are the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury?

Because a traumatic brain injury can occur without visible external evidence, the symptoms associated with a traumatic brain injury may be the best way to determine if you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injury symptoms can include:

  • Headaches
  • Neck Pain
  • Blurred Vision
  • Loss of One or More Senses
  • Poor Balance
  • Easily Confused
  • Difficulty With Mental Tasks
  • Poor Memory
  • Difficulty Concentrating

What are some of the long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury?

A traumatic brain injury cannot be corrected the same way a broken arm can. Often times, the effects of a traumatic brain injury are permanent, causing a devastating change to your life and the lives of those around you. Long-term effects of a traumatic brain injury can cause permanent problems such as:

  • Memory
  • Concentration
  • Speech
  • Seizures
  • Coordination
  • Balance
  • Mood
